Education for Life 



Friday Evening 

The Twenty-Ninth of May 

Nineteen Hundred and Ninety-Two 


Long ago our native people 
Dwelling here upon this land, 
Taught our forebears how to live here, 
Stretching out a helping hand. 

Native people, weary strangers, 
Dwelt together in this place, 
Bravely overcoming hardship, 
Trusting, caring, race with race. 

Massasoit led his people 
Here in this Old Colony, 
Granting peace and trust to strangers, 
Pilgrims from across the sea. 

We salute you, Massasoit, 
Proudly sharing in your name 
Faith, endurance, peace and knowledge, 
Gifts of strength we now proclaim. 

We will hold aloft our banner, 
Massasoit' s green and white, 
Keeping firm our hope and courage, 
Forging paths for human right. 

With endurance, faith for the future, 
Pride where there once was none in sight, 
We share learning with all people, 
Peace and love our guiding light. 

Lyrics written by 
Professor Dorothy Gibbs and Afrika Hayes Lambe.

The academic procession is one of the oldest traditions of colleges throughout 
the world. In medieval times the ordinary dress of the university scholar, whether 
student or teacher, was the dress of the cleric including a long gown, and often in 
cold weather a cloak with a hood vhich could be pulled up over the head for cover 
and protection. 

Although fashions have changed since the 16th century, scholars of the post- 
medieval period have retained the academic attire. Eventually the attire was 
prescribed by university statutes to distinguish the different faculties and degrees-of- 
learning. The associate, bachelor, master, and doctoral gowns differ stylistically in 
cut and decorative motif. 

The colorful hoods, which indicate fields of learning and the institutions con- 
ferring the degree, were originally worn over the head, but during the 16th century, 
caps were adopted and the hood was draped over the shoulder. 

A long tassel is attached to the middle point of the top of the cap, to drape over 
the left edge of the mortar board. The tassel may be black, gold, or the color appro-

Francis Scott Key 

Oh, say! can you sec, by the daum's early light, 
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming? 
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight, 
O'er the ramparts u>e watched were so gallantly streaming? 
And the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air, 
Gaue proof through the night that our flag u>as still there. 
Oh, say does that Star- Spangled Banner yet wove 
O'er the land of the free and the home of the braue? 


Katherinc Lee Bates, Samuel A. Ward 

O beautiful for spacious skies, 
For amber u>aues of grain, 
For purple mountain majesties 
Aboue the fruited plain. 


America! America! 

God shed His grace on thee, 

And crou)n thy good u>ith brotherhood 

From sea to shining sea. 

O beautiful for patriot dream 
That sees beyond the years, 
Thine alabaster cities gleam 
Undimmed by human tears. 


America! America! 

God shed His grace on thee, 

And croum thy good urith brotherhood 

From sea to shining sea.
